I created this comforting tea to include pumpkin, my favorite fall flavor, along with other nourishing superfoods. The collagen is optional, but can provide nutrients that a modern diet might be void of. It’s also the basic building block of skin, hair, nails, bones and joints. Enjoy!

Pumpkin Rooibos Tea

Ingredients:

2-3 Yogi Chai Rooibos tea bags

2 tbsp. fresh pureed pumpkin

½ tsp. pumpkin pie spice

2-3 dashes of cinnamon

Pinch of sea salt

1 tsp. vanilla extract

10 drops liquid stevia to taste (raw honey may also be used)

½ cup almond or coconut milk

½ tsp. Collagen Peptides (this is optional, but I use Vital Proteins brand)

Directions:

  1. Steep tea in 12-16 oz. of very hot water for 5 minutes
  2. Remove tea bags, then blend all ingredients in a blender (make sure you’re using a blender that is safe for hot liquids)
  3. Place tea in a mug and add dashes of cinnamon on top (optional)
  4. Serve immediately while warm and frothy (makes 2 servings)
